Atlas workers do you think Loblaws brought in logistics in motion because they felt Atlas was to hard on you, Or Atlas was not getting the job done, I am sure the new bosses will be harder and what happens when your contract is up ? bye bye caw,

Agreed. RTO is just one of those douchebags who sits on his seniority like an egg he's trying to hatch. Hey RTO... fuck your seniority. We all work in the same shithole. ever read animal farm?(assuming you can read) How fitting that you're one of the pigs who sees himself above the rest. Oh my god you got hired before me!! Lmao The sad part is thats your greatest life achievement, handing a resume into atlas. Grow a fucking brain. Get off of this forum for a few days. Its making you more bitter and jaded than working at atlas ever can. Besides.... how do you know what my seniority is? Can you even see from under that desk?

<<They don't need spies. There's enough snitches on the floor as is.>>

Tired of it
<<..Anyone who thinks they can make some change in an environment like that is a moron...Everyone just needs to work And shut the hell up.>>

I am a realist and am old enough to see and have worked for businesses where the left hand doesn't know what the right is doing...hey, it happens. I heard the damnedest thing the other day where someone used the wrong pronoun in conversation with me. It almost gave credence to the three quotes above...well at least to me. Normally, I'd blow it off as a slip but now I'm not so sure. When you go from third person plural to first person plural in conversation followed by an almost propaganda-like phrase took me by surprise.

I'm happy to have a job and I'm just gonna keep my head down, my outlook positive and do my job as best as I can. I appreciate all the help on the floor from my fellow co-workers. Great tips and advice from various sources. If I can make it work then great but if I can then I'll keep struggling/fighting til they fire me.

He is one of those people who say you must have a union to have a good work place. So what happened to the last place it worked? Why is it not there anymore if the union made it such a great place to work?

When reps sit there and say nothing it's because there is nothing to say. It means you fucked up. Reps don't waive a magic wand and make you invincible to accountability. They are there as support, they file a greivance for you and the greivance gets tossed out at union management meetings because the vast majority of the diciplines are just. People who say "the rep did nothing for me" deserve the consequence.

He's only been a steward since the end of April/ early May... If you've needed a rep a "few times now" and its only August, maybe you should just start doing your job properly...
